BEST REASON TO BE OBSESSED WITH A BLOGCPSObsessed.com
Wading into the notion of sending your kid to a city public school makes you feel like Boromir in the Lord of the Rings: “One does not simply walk into CPS.” Sure, there are guides and message boards and warnings from all around, but no one quite captures the emotional voyage a parent takes when plowing through magnet-school reports like Rebecca Labowitz, the writer behind CPSObsessed.com. Here, a wealth of information awaits, including quick links to various calendars and resources. But really, Labowitz’s voice and perspective are what’s so valuable: Nothing comforts and validates more than discovering that someone shares your neuroses and has worked through them with a fine sense of humor. It’s that balance—the various informational posts combined with the real-life experiences of being an obsessed parent—that makes reading the blog so essential, and so cathartic.
